Princess Ten Ten and the Dark Skies: A Musical
Finding Her Voice, Saving Our Skies

Conducted by Ruth Charloff    Directed by Winter Lawson
Featuring the 50-plus musicians of the UCR Orchestra and UCR student performers singing the musical story of Princess Ten Ten and the Dark Skies.

Based on the storybook written by Professor Setsu Shigematsu and the Guardian Princess Alliance, this coming-of-age story features Princess Ten Ten, a gender-nonconforming princess, the mythical land of Fusan, and an environmental crisis that will take all her courage and skill to battle.

Music is by composer and actress Jacqueline Emerson (“Hunger Games”) arranged by Lee Huff and spectacularly set for full orchestra by Tim Labor and Christiaan Clark.
